Nice hotel but a little "tired"

Great hotel.The staff was fantastic. Nice location near Trinity. Chairs in the room were very uncomfortable and the carpet had some dirty spots as well some cigarette burns on the furniture in spite of the fact that it was a no smoking room. Good place to stay for the right price but nothing to write home about.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Hotel is at the far end of Trinity College - the other three sides of the campus have a lot of shopping, dining and attractions.

Good hotel but couple of things could be better

The room was big and comfortable. The hotel location great practically in the posh part of the city. My room needed some refreshment, but it was ok. TV stations limited choice and the air conditioner was extremely laud starting and stoping every 10 minutes. To be able to sleep I had to stop it. Cleaning was OK, but not more.

Spacious room, helpful staff

This hotel is one block away from an Air Coach stop so you don't need a car to get from the airport. Great location, especially if you're going to Trinity College and want lots of nearby shopping and bar hopping. It was a bit warm (and sunny!) when I was there. I opened the window at night -- the air conditioning was not working well. This hotel does not offer free internet/wireless. Very comfortable, contemporary, clean rooms.

Nice Location, good value

Hotel was easy to find, about a block from the aircoach drop off point. Check in was smooth and friendly. Room was a nice size for Europe. The king size bed was comfortable, although it seemed like two beds combined into one. The tv was small, and very limited in terms of channels (three BBC channels, Sky news, and a couple of movie channels). I did not eat at the hotel restaurant as it was too expensive. There is a convenience store nearby where you can by water and snacks. There are a couple of coffee shops across the street towards Trinity College where you can get coffee and a pastry for only 3.50. There is a take out pizza joint across the street which was pretty good and reasonably priced. If you order a newspaper at the hotel, you WILL get charged at checkout, unlike the US where newspapers are generally complimentary. The card with the listing of newspapers did not indicate the prices of any of the newspapers or that you would be charged.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Save your money and eat breakfast at one of the coffee shops right near the hotel. One has free wifi, too.
